Ben Affleck's Back Tattoo Might Actually Be a Pokemon in Disguise

Ben Affleck

Ben later takes to his Twitter account to respond to the article.

When poked by one of Gotham's very own publications, The New Yorker, Ben Affleck came to his own rescue on Twitter Thursday.

Affleck was first spotted with the tattoo in December 2015, but denied it was real, telling Extra TV's Mario Lopez that he just got a fake, temporary tattoo for a movie. It described his tattoo as "garish" and his physique with even less flattering language.

Ben Affleck finally addresses his controversial tattoo as he reacts to a New Yorker article that talks about his "great sadness". "A phoenix rising from the ashes ..."

"(It's) fake for a movie", Affleck said.

Sexual assault charges, Gold Coast
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call investigators with the Windsor police at 519-255-6700 ext. Police say 69-year-old Yury Romanov of Toronto was charged with one count of sexual assault.

While a third said: "Ben Affleck's back tattoo is, and I'm saying this without hyperbole, one of the funniest goddamn things I've ever seen in my entire life".

Fry compared Affleck to a "shy teen at the local pool" after seeing the images of him using a blue towel to hide his 'gut pooching outward'.

Thinking, 'Oh, no Ben Affleck didn't?' We can assure you he did. Garner shared her thoughts about the ink with Vanity Fair, and even Affleck's close pal, Matt Damon, weighed in. 'Bless his heart.' Am I the ashes in this scenario? "I take umbrage. I refuse to be the ashes".

That same year, Jennifer Lopez called it "awful", telling Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, "His tattoos always have too many colors, they shouldn't be so colorful". "I support him in all of his artistic expression". Besides his looks, the author also lambasted the actor for his "suddenly flailing" career and wrote that his appearance suggests "the coming fall of man". "There is something about this exhausted father that reflexively induces panic", Fry concluded.

"Ben Affleck Steps Out With Lindsay Shookus Amid Back Tattoo Drama", OK magazine chimed in.
